Icinga Director Workshop

The Director is a popular tool for maintaining monitoring environments basend on Icinga. It is implemented as an Icinga-Web 2 module and requires a database as a backend. This workshop starts with the installation and afterwards dives deep into configuration of the Director - from the console, but also with the GUI.

First of all, the participants work out basic principles such as

  • Host objects
  • Templates for hosts and services
  • The usage of apply-rules
  • Service sets
  • Parameterized plugin call with data fields and -lists

Based thereon, a test environment consisting of

  • Icinga -Master,
  • Satellite and
  • agents on Linux and Windows

will be configured.

One of the strengths of the Director is its ability to tap from external data sources, and, based on the gathered information, create host objects and build a runnable configuration from it. Sources on

  • file-level
  • SQL database

will be the examples needed in the second part of the workshop.

To ensure an aim-oriented and efficient realization of this training the number of participants is limited. This enables an intense examination of the course content and the opportunity to settle individual questions and problems.

The exchange between the participants is of particular importance for us. This is also the reason why all participants are invited to dinner so that a lot of scope for discussions and exchange of experience is allowed between the participants outside the workshop hours.
